The bake time for the prepared kolache dough is 20 to 25 minutes in a 350-degree oven or until the desired doneness is achieved. The kolache dough recipe on Page E4 in Thursday's Get Out omitted the baking temperature and time. Below is the recipe in its entirety.
Makes about 2 dozen
• 1 cup warm milk
• 3 cups flour
• 2 eggs
• 1 package of yeast
• cup sugar
• cup butter, softened
• cup butter, melted (optional)
• cup coarse sugar or Sugar in the Raw (optional)
In a cup, measure 1/3 cup of warm milk and 1 teaspoon sugar and stir. Stir in the yeast until dissolved. Set aside and allow yeast to do its thing and bubble. Add flour to a large bowl. Making a well in the center, add the remaining warm milk, eggs, sugar, butter, salt and yeast mixture. Mix and knead until smooth. Portion into small balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place them closer together if you want them to bump up against each other as they cook. Leave room if you want them to be round kolaches. Allow them to rise for about 20-30 minutes. Once they have risen, punch a circle in the center - being sure not to punch it all the way through the bottom - with your thumb, knuckle, a shot glass or some other implement that will create a deep well for your filling. If you want more crust around the filling, leave the walls of your well thick; if you want more filling, then make them thinner by making a larger well. Add the filling with a spoon. Brush crust with melted butter and dust edges with coarse sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until the desired browning is achieved.
